An exciting and stylish two-door sports car, the 2010 Nissan 370Z adds a convertible to the lineup in addition to the new NISMO coupe version. Power for the standard coupe and convertible arrive in the form of the 332 hp 3.7L V6 connected to a six-speed manual or a seven-speed paddle-shifted automatic. The NISMO version ups the power ante to 350 hp. SyncroRev Match is available on all manual transmissions and helps provide a smooth and fast ride by matching engine revs on downshifts. This 370Z is a true sports car but also achieves 25 mpg on the highway.Read more Read less
An all-new 370Z Roadster joins the 370Z Coupe for 2010. With a power-operated soft-top design and intimate cockpit-style interior, the Convertible gets all the performance revisions and upgrades that the 370Z Coupe got last year, when it was completely redesigned. The 370Z Coupe carries into 2010 with no changes, but a new NISMO 370Z performance model--specially tuned for track performance--joins the lineup, with limited availability.
Acceleration, braking, and handling; serious sports-car attitude; intimate cabin feel; transmission downshift rev-matching; performance value for the money
Nearly everything about the 370Z models is tuned for performance, rather than fuel-efficiency or comfort or space, and shoppers should take that into account. If it is bragging rights and top-notch, satisfying performance you want, the new 370Z models won't disappoint. In testing, the 370Z has returned performance numbers that rival cars costing several times as much; its looks more expensive than it is, too. With its soft-top design and intimate cockpit-style interior, the new 370Z Roadster is a good choice for sports-car fans, not for those simply interested in an open-air cruiser.
